The GazettE

Band: The GazettE


Vocals: Ruki
Bass: Reita
Guitar: Uruha
Guitar: Aoi
Drums: Kai

Ex-Drummer: Yune

Ruki, Reita, Uruha, Aoi and Yune formed ガゼット in March of 2002. They released their first single “Wakaremichi” in April, and released two more singles by September.

In 2003 Yune left the band and was replaced by Kai.Soon ガゼット signed with the PS Company label, and released their first mini-album, Cockayne Soup, and also started their first tour with Hanamuke. On their second tour they performed with Vidoll. Cure published an edition with ガゼット and Vidoll on the cover picture. On Decmber 28th, they performed at the Beauti-fool’s Fest, along side bands such as Kra, Miyavi, Merry, MUCC, and D’espairs Ray. On March 30th, 2004 their second mini-album Madara was released, which was later followed by a DVD. Later that year they released their debut album, Disorder, and toured for the rest of the year, and well into 2005.

By 2006 ガゼット changed their name to The GazettE, released Nil, their second full length album, and started yet another tour. At the beginning of the tour they performed for the first time out of Asia, the performance was in conjunction with German Anime and Manga, and AnimagiC. The GazettE released their third full length album, Stacked Rubbish in 2007, it will be followed by a promotional tour, which started on July 15th 2008.

The GazettE won several awards for the Jrock Choice Awards including:
Best Album: Stacked Rubbish, Best Song: Burial Applicant, Best Artist, Best B-Side or Album Track: Chizuru, Craziest English Title: Art Drawn By Vomit, and more. Their new single, Guren, is on sale starting Feb 13th 2008.

Every time I listen to, or watch a video of Gazette live, I am completely amazed, I have yet to find another band, any band, that sounds exactly like their recorded songs when playing live. I had to compare live songs with the recorded songs for a very long time [and with Sammeh’s help too] in order to actually catch a minuscule crack in Ruki’s voice. This band has perfection down, their music has substance, they obviously do not fake their talent, and so far I’ve been able to listen to their songs over and over without ever getting sick of them.

The GazettE are a must for JRock fans that love feeling such a wide range of emotion from each song, it is awesome feeling the music on your skin and in your heart. The day they release their work in the U.S., along with tours is the day me and Sammeh will fling mountains out of our way just to see them.

  1. hello im a big fan of gazette. my fav from all the jrock bands that i knew 🙂

    Taion is a great song, i love it so much. i never heard of defective tradegy so im listening to it now. my other fav is filth in the beauty. that is also the most beautiful song that i heard ^^ the video itself is nice xD

  2. Hey there.
    Im a HUGE fan of Gazette. In fact they were the first band that I ever heard when it comes to Jrock. I love the way the music sounds and truthfully it calms me down a ton when I get sad and stuff like that.

    I love there song Taion. But I love their newest song (I forgot the name of SORRY) from their CD Stacked Rubbish. If you havent heard or bought the CD yet, I suggest that you do.

  3. They were your first?
    Ah, mine was Malice Mizer -> Dir en grey -> Miyavi-sama -> The GazettE
    From that point on my love for JRock and Visual Kei blossomed.

    Oh I bought STACKED RUBBISH, bloody expensive for me, but worth it, I even kept the wrapper it came in. *laughs*
    From what I can see I’m guessing that you like Chizuru.

  4. Gazette is one of the first jrock band I’ve heard of and actually kept listening to lol.

    I’m ashamed to say that I heard about them when one of my friend made me listen to Filth In The Beauty. As much as I love the song, I can’t say this is the most representative of their talent.

    I own all their music now and they are just fantastic. I adore them ^^
    My favorite song is Taion so I’m glad you put that one up!
    Then it’s Defective Tragedy (because I mean c’mon, have you heard Aoi screaming in it *melts*)
    and I love Worthless War too.

  5. […] Check it out! While looking through the blogosphere we stumbled on an interesting post today.Here’s a quick excerpt down, their music has substance, they obviously do not fake their talent, and so far I’ve been able… the music on your skin and in your heart. The day they release their work in the U.S., along […]

  6. Defective Tragedy. I’m actually listening to it right at this moment. XD

    I also love Toguro. It’s absolutely beautiful. When I heard that they played it at their recent live in Europe, I was so happy.

    Right now I’m actually preparing to do a project on Ruki for school.

    They are hte most amazing band ever. In any language.

  7. Kyaaaaaaa I love Toguro, I wanted to cry when I heard that they played it in Europe (Germany, ne?)…

    My friend is going to draw Ruki for our Art 2 portrait assignment. ^^

  12. Write them a mail or note and they might try to get into that area or close. Its worth a shot.

  13. Hi!! Just wondering… can anyone send me the url to their personal blogs? Thanks!

  14. Their blogs are actually fanclub locked.

  52. i now in malaysia i like reita in the gazette group i want to meet them but…i can’t cause i didn’t have a money to go to japan….:(((


  54. Actually I prefer some of their songs live than the recorded versions. In my opinion Ruki’s performance of DIM SCENE at Tokyo Dome was simply unmatched. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    Same goes for Bathroom. Just the way that his voice echoes in the huge arena is amazing and beautiful.

    It is actually the only band which I prefer lives, simply because yes, Ruki can sing, and yes, they can play their instruments.

  55. My first Jrock band was Dir En Grey and I love them to death! I have practically all their music on my computer! Just got into the Gazette yesterday and I feel in love instantly! It kind of gets me down that they don’t tour America :/ And Dir En Grey canceled their tour this year TT-TT

  56. i just want ,informations .if when there concert here in the philippines…..

  57. the gazette im Lyle from CEBU Philippines please have a concert here someday
    😉 ❤

  58. I LOVE this band~. The first song I heard by them was “SHIVER” when it came out as the opening for Kuroshitsuji(Black Butler) Season 2.

    Since then, I’ve discovered so many of their amazing songs. Check out my GazettE dedicated blog:
